Raising funds for SQSH! If SQSH sounds like a hug, it’s because that’s exactly what it is. You can read all about it and find out how to support SQSH today on Giving Tuesday (or anytime!) here.
reading Fever Dream with Indy. We liked it but it wasn’t nearly as gasp-worthy as reviews made it sound.
finishing up archery training! Yay! We have a great group of new kids joining our older archers.
calling a new mentor for some tips in another project
kicking sugar and craving squash soup
decorating for the holidays. Indy had us laughing so hard with his impression of me going gaga over cinnamon, then Wood Sprite and I ooohed and ahhhed over the lights so much we ended up not finishing the tree. Honestly, we used to push through and get every tote emptied in one day! That sounds exhausting. These days it takes me a few days to decorate–even with more family help–and if I’m not feeling something, it goes back into a tote. Who am I?!
naming the tree. The past few trees included Boromir, Gertrude and Bertrand. This year’s tree is called Larry Gary Barry Jerry Gergich. Yeah, we mix them up and never say it the same way.
finishing prep work on my 2022 planner
having lunch with an old friend
not sleeping great, which always happens when Indy goes back to work. He’s got a few long weekends coming up and I’m sure rest will be all over the place.
making All. The. Appointments. I was on the phone yesterday for nearly two hours. At least they’re all made!
loving Indy’s birthday countdown and finalizing his birthday plans
reorganizing book lists. I tend to do this every time Wood Sprite and I revisit our goals.
craving a wickedly sweet coffee. Did I mention I cut sugar out?
chugging water and trying to not think of said delicious wickedness. To be clear, I don’t think any food is wicked and I’m using the word to mean something I love. If you love and eat lots of sugar, I’m not judging and I definitely relate to having a sweet tooth. Unfortunately, it aggravates my symptoms so cutting it out is in my best interest. Being unhappy now will help me feel better in a couple of days. In the meantime, I mope.
checking out some Barefoot Books for my niece
making plans for next semester
What are you up to?
